Chastain-Skillman, Inc. was contracted by the Polk County Utilities Department (PCUD) to design a new well and 3.2 mgd max day capacity water production facility (WPF). Services also included assistance in selecting a site for the well and extensive ground water modeling in support of required modifications to the Water Use Permit.
A 16-inch diameter well, 800 feet deep with 160 feet of casing was designed and drilled. The proposed water production facility includes: a well pump, a one million gallon ground storage reservoir, four variable speed high-service pumps with a total capacity of 4000 gpm disinfection facilities using sodium hypochlorite, andan emergency generator.
Site features include security measures including intrusion alarms and monitoring cameras. In addition, an existing off-site well will be connected to the new water plant and existing obsolete systems at the site will be removed.
